As much as I'm still in love with my 3DS and as much as I'd like to spend another Recaps on talking about video games, today is another day I just don't have time for that. Hopefully it's the last one! Within a little over a week, I need to finish three papers and prepare one presentation. One of those papers needs to be done by Monday, and it's being a bitch-and-a-half, so I'm going to be struggling with that one for the rest of the day and the weekend.

Finally, though, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Once these papers are done, I will be more or less completely finished. I can't begin to tell you how much I need at least a week to do absolutely nothing but play video games and watch movies, and that's exactly what I'm going to do.

I want to finish Bioshock Infinite which I've been playing through Family Sharing, I want to finish A Link Between Worlds which I'm still enjoying, I want to 100% Super Mario 3D World, there's a bunch of new games I got through the latest Humble Indie Bundle I still need to check out, I haven't touched Rogue Legacy since I got it in a Steam Sale, the list is virtually endless. It's going to be quite the week, let me tell ya. And I really really really want to reward myself for doing all that work without getting (too) distracted by video games by buying myself Pokémon X or Y. What can I say, I deserve it!
And, of course, I want to tell you guys all about it too!

After that, hopefully the next semester will not be quite as busy as this one.

* - Buddy Acker shares some of his story about his bisexuality. In addition, he speaks my mind about video games.

* - There are many reasons for why you should totally play Metal Gear Rising.

A - The DICE awards nominees have been announced recently, so VoltySquirrel wants to share his picks.

A - SamNN just doesn't know what to play! Or if he even wants to in the first place...

I - Go say hi to our new blogger, Adam McDonald!

T - Having played some of Double Fine's Broken Age, dmcscott finds a great game that is not exactly like he expected it.

T - Nimsshow did the unthinkable. He erased his Pokémon save file and started a new game.

F - SK120 takes a look at the Super Mario Bros. 3 animated show. Meanwhile, Mario thinks you're racist and you should feel bad.

F - This seems rather pointless.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
First Kiss

No matter what the experience was or which game or genre left that strong first impression, such experiences have the potential to open our eyes to the rich history of a series or genre. With any luck, we might find even more to love or something better. A great first experience with RPGs could lead to an undying love affair.

Sometimes a first kiss can be so impactful that the game gets placed on a pedestal and enshrined as a gold standard, which has its own pros and cons. I mean, it is nice to have a basis for comparison, but some folks take it too far. There are people who loved Half-Life, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, or Final Fantasy VII so much that nothing after them really got a fair shake.

So first impressions matter -- they can shape and inform our gaming habits. I grew up on arcades, Nintendo, handhelds, and eventually into RPGs, so much of what I play will be influenced by how I acquired my tastes. I probably like Overwatch a ton because it has a passion for RPG roles, but contextualizes them closer to older shooters focused on objectives more than gear builds and grinding out perks for better killstreaks.

So for this month's Bloggers Wanted, we'd like you head over to the community blogs write about your first kiss, the games that positively influenced you or maybe biased you a little too much for a time. What turned you on to a series or genre? Was it love at first sight? Did it set any expectations in stone or possibly lead you to something better?

Whatever the case might be, remember to use the title "First kiss" and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags!
